CC though yes essentially that is what we are about as Dudeists, the point I'm trying to make (and doing so badly) is I have conversations here and (on the whole) I feel they are conversations of worth, where as on FaceBook I just feel like it's a lot of people shouting "Look at me!", I just don't seem to have the quality of conversation that I do here (and don't even get me stated with twitter).

Abiding and saying Fuck it when it looks like it is going to get too complicated maybe?

This I agree with.

Being lazy and not giving a fuck what anyone else things?

Personally I would have said expending the minimal amount of energy necessary to get the job done, rather than lazy. Lazy suggests not giving a fuck whatever, which is not my personal point of view.

I may just be playing with semantics there.

and to make the point:

I do not have a facebook or twitter account so I cannot relate, but from what others have said it does seem to be more of a time suck than discussion boards. Sort of like being a Lebowskist and doing nothing put quoting from the movie. It may be fun for awhile but it gets old real fast.
Yeah, ok we quote from the movie here as well, but at least here we try to put it in context in relation to hopefully something more meaningful. Ok, sometimes Not! ;D

Yeah, it's all semantics isn't it.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - - that's all."
(Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 6)

I use it, and actually kind of enjoy it. I don't do any of the apps or games at all, and you can block all of the BS, so you don't have to deal with all the invites and game updates. Besides friends here in the states, I also have done a bit of traveling, and have met a number of people. We keep in touch on FB. It does make it easier for things like that.

Hmm, y'know, I think there are many different levels of socialising and exchanging ideas nowadays, especially with the inner-net bringing us all a whole heap closer together.

When it comes to Dudeism I keep in touch via Facebook a little, I know a lot of Dudes on there and we comment on each others status' and links etc, a good exchange of ideas and an extra smile on each others' days.  Yeah, the Facebook page for Dudeism offers little but the main official Dudeism posts about events, Dudespaper articles, etc.  To that end, it's a gentle little thing if you use it right.

I like the Forum here, it's a good open sorta thing where ideas and silliness flows and you can dip in and out as needbe.  But for me, I do love the Dudespaper for its large chunks of information and the ability to come back and discuss on it (ok, yeah, I'm a little biased ;)).

Of course, sometimes there's no better way to wax dudeical than in person, if possible, an infrequent joy between a few of us around these parts, as Meekon (he's not all that antisocial really!) will attest to (maybe) :P

I have yet to meet a dude in person. Almost did a few months ago while doing some shopping. We were over in the produce section at Wegman's when a gray haired gentleman wearing a bathrobe and a T-shirt walked past into the next section. Wanted to yell out Hay Dude! but by the time I turned the corner he was gone. Kept an eye out for him the rest of the stay, but didn't catch sight of him again. Didn't see if he was wearing jellies or not.

you could have found me today at the park throwing frisbee and then at 7-11 buying chocolate milk wearing my robe and if not jellies, at least they are thrift store knock-off 'vans' with the word 'jesus and 'freedom' on them graffiti style( not my doing!).
this is a lot harder to pull off being a gal.

Facebook, no Facebook..  White Russians, no White Russians... Bathrobes and Jellies and Sacraments OH MY!!!   If you want to, do it. If you don't want it, or don't like it, abide.  Just abide and have fun Dudes, in whatever way doesn't pee on your rug (or anybody else's).

From what is Dudeism trying to liberate us?Thinking that's too uptight.

To what state of being is Dudeism trying to bring us? Just taking it easy, man.

By what means does Dudeism attempt do this? Abiding.

And if there wasn't a forum, there's be no public whinging for us all to bask in.  There's an Ouroboros thing going on here... O
